Review - The Quickie by James Patterson

I do not think I have ever read a book with so many jaw dropping twists. This suspense story was superb.

I wasn't able to give a Teaser from it and now I don't even know what to write as a Review without spoiling it for you.

Honestly how is it possible to have that many twists and surprises. This is not a wait to the end to find out what happens, this is a race to put all the puzzle pieces together to see the end result of brilliance. Lots of action, suspense, romance and LIES.

In the beginning I did roll my eyes a little because I was just like how unethical, that won't happen but it was good and kept me interested and once the first surprise happened I was hooked.

James Patterson along with Michael Ledwidge gave us a Brilliant Suspense story, go out and buy this one now.

I give it 4 1/2 stars

Book Summary

With the perfect marriage and a great job, Lauren Stillman loves her wonderful life . . . until she sees her husband with another woman. Devastated and lusting for revenge, Lauren has her own affair. It's supposed to be a quickie, but Lauren's night of passion takes a shocking turn when she witnesses an unbelievable and deadly crime. Now her horrifying secret threatens to tear her life apart, pitting her need to uncover the truth against her fear that the truth may be too horrible to bear. And whichever choice she makes may cost her dearly-her job, her marriage . . . or even her life.
